    They just blow my mind... Magical mix between 70's country and 80's melodic rock...

    Nope, but we did have two great singers (Larry and Jimmy), another skilled guitarist (my friend Rick W) and brilliant drummer Rick C.
    That band, called Cookin', was the best cover band I was ever in.
    We could cover the smart pop country bands of the era, Southern Pacific, Restless Heart, Exile, Shenandoah, and solo artists like Steve Wariner and T Graham Brown.
    I still love slick pop music.

    Yes!
    I do it in my solo show, too.
    Don Cook wrote it.
    I play and sing it on my nylon string guitar.
    I had the great pleasure of being his opening act three times.
    What a great artist!

    My cover bands opened for him.
    Those bands were Frances Ann Kyle, The Price Sisters, and Cookin'.
    In the 80s, local cover/dance/bar bands (of higher caliber) often got to be the opening acts for national touring acts.
    I have opened for dozens of great artists, and even played with a few, including Wanda Jackson, Leroy Parnell, David Ball, Rick Trevino, and pre-fame Junior Brown.

    Was Toni Price one of the Price Sisters? I really like her songs and singing.

    No, Toni appeared in town much later.
    I never actually had the pleasure of seeing, or playing with her.
    The Price Sisters were from Burnet, Tx.
    Cindy and Brenda.
    They were fun to play with, but have long since retired from playing.
